I locked myself out of the Sonicwall Pro230 by disabling remote http/https management rules. How can I get back in to turn the rules on again?

    Accepted Solution

    You have to access the Sonicwall via CLI and reset the WEB access settings.  Use the null modem cable (DB9-F) that came in with the appliance and connect that to the port labeled "Console" at the back of the appliance. Connect the other end to a PC. Use hyperterminal with the following setting: 9600 bps, 8 bits, no parity, no flow control. You will then need to login with the administrator account and use the following commands:

    web-management http enable
    web-management http port default

    web-management https enable
    web-management https port default
